Call for Papers

The IEEE International Conference on Cloud Engineering (IC2E) is targeted
to be a premier conference on cloud computing, which represents a paradigm
shift for the use and delivery of information technology (IT) and has been
revolutionizing the support of on-demand access, economies of scale, and
dynamic sourcing options. IC2E provides a high-quality and comprehensive
forum, where researchers and practitioners can exchange information on
engineering principles, enabling technologies, and practical experiences
related to cloud computing. The conference brings together experts who work
on different levels of the cloud stack—systems, storage, networking,
platforms, databases, and applications. IC2E offers an end-to-end view on
the challenges and technologies in cloud computing, fosters research that
addresses the interaction between different layers of the stack, and
ultimately helps shape the future of cloud-transformed business and society.

IC2E-2020 invites submissions of high-quality research papers describing
fully-developed results, and ongoing foundational and applied work related
to all aspects of cloud engineering. The program committee will interpret
“cloud engineering” very broadly—everything from engineering principles to
practical experiences, at and across different levels of the cloud stack,
from both academia and industry.


We particularly encourage submissions on topics of emerging interest in the
research and development communities. We invite submissions on the
following topics:

* Cloud Infrastructure

- Processors, accelerators for Cloud processing: interactive, batch, and
- Cloud storage and databases
- Programming models, benchmarks, and tools

- Platforms and services for data and analytics
- Operational analytics and DevOps solutions
- Economics of cloud

* Cloud services

- X as a Service: Backend, Business Process, Database, Infrastructure,
Network, - Platform, Security, Software, Storage, etc.
- Microservices in the cloud
- Support for mobility
- Accelerators at the edge and core

as-a-service offerings
- Experimental data on cloud operations and usage patterns
- Managing big data, practical challenges and emerging techniques
- Experience with management systems, tools, and integration

--------------IMPORTANT DATES--------------

Abstract submission deadline : November 15th 2019, 23:59 GMT
Full paper submission deadline : November 22nd 2019, 23:59 GMT
Author notification:January 31st 2020
Camera-ready deadline:March 20th 2020

--------------SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS--------------

Please submit full (and short) papers by the full paper submission deadline
in PDF format via the web submission form. All papers should be double
Full research/industry track papers should not exceed 10 pages double
column, including figures, and tables. References can be additional pages.
We do not distinguish research and industry, there is a unified track.
Short papers are limited to 6 pages, not including references. Short papers
should be clearly marked as such in the title.

The manuscripts may not exceed 10-point size font on 8.5x11 inch pages
(IEEE conference style).

--------------REVIEW PROCESS & PUBLICATION--------------

All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed. Submissions will be judged
on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, quality of
presentation, and interest and relevance to the conference scope. Submitted
manuscripts must contain original contributions, and their contributions
must NOT have appeared in or be under consideration for publication in
another workshop, conference, or journal. After review, some full paper
submissions may be offered to be published as a short paper (6 pages) or a
poster (2 pages).

Accepted papers will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Conference
Publishing Services (EI indexed).
